Hello, my setup : NUC7 BNH and Mojave 10.14.2
I've followed this guide (which is excellent), Hibernate was disabled using pmset

I've got a little issue, it's related to sleep / power-saving

Sometimes, when waking up, the HDMI monitor isn't turned on properly and there's garbage onscreen.
This happen when the computer was asleep for a long period ( 1h+ ), if woken up right after sleep = no problem.

By googling this look like a common (HDMI hardware?) issue on Intel NUC and unrelated to operating system : Windows & Linux are affected.

The only solution that I've found
* Disable sleep from the Apple menu
sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.PowerManagement.plist SystemPowerSettings -dict SleepDisabled -bool YES
* Using an app called 'Amphetamine' that keeps computer running but at least turn the monitor OFF after few minutes

If someone knows a better solution I would be glad to learn it.
You forgot to attach problem reporting files. Read post #1.

Hi, I have a boxnuc8i7beh1, got almost everything working, but when I put it to sleep, it will wake up but itself after a couple of seconds to the login screen. I will attach my debug file, and if anyone need the clove for this particular model, it's in the package too. I used my EFI folder for both installation and use, works fine.
Try without unneeded USB devices plugged (such as USB WiFi).

Hello,

I would like to test the NUC8i5BEH guide I've been working on, and install a "fresh" version of macOS Mojave.
But I can't access the recovery partition to erase macOS from my SSD.

Thanks for help!
Press F3 in Clover (read Clover documentation for further details).

After installing VoodooHDA 2.9.0, the audio part is working. Fixing the Bluetooth. Now I can't turn off the built in bluetooth and it is not working. I have external BT dongle. Anyone can help me to fix it? Thanks.
This guide does not use VoodooHDA.kext.

Well I got the system to finally boot directly to macOS. But when i changed the NUC8 to Macmini8,1 the system booted fine but showed a 2012 iMac vs 16,2??
You probably still have iMac16,2 data in config.plist/SMBIOS.

For the NUC8i7BEH, should I format my USB to MBR or GPT?
Your choice.
It will work with either.
MBR is a bit easier to manage as "CLOVER EFI" will mount automatically.

I followed Rehabman's guide all the way through, inclusive of disabling (I think?) hibernation mode for my NUC8 i3.

When I sleep my computer for a long period (overnight), or just leave it (and it put displays and hard disks to sleep on its own eventually), I typically come back to this garbled screen that comes in/out. When it goes out, the NUC loses connectivity to the display. I have to turn off the NUC and turn it back on to resolve.

Anyone else experiencing this and potentially solved it?


@RehabMan - can you help with this? Myself and another poster in this long thread have been affected by this garbled screen issue waking from a long (4+ hours) sleep.
